Song of the week: Confidence Man, Boyfriend (Repeat)

Brisbane, Australia’s, Confidence Man has exactly one song to their name. But my god, what a song. I really can’t improve on Triple J Unearthed’s description of the song as “like Tom Tom Club partying with LCD Soundsystem.”

This is the party song to end all party songs. If I’d heard it before this week there’s no question that it would’ve been near the top of my year-end best-of list. Hilarious, deadpan vocals courtesy of Janet Planet detailing all of her boyfriend’s shortcomings (basically, he’s just sooooo sensitive) and an insanely infectious beat make this a keeper. I can only imagine how fabulous their live show must be. Shame they’re a 24-hour flight away…
